You might think it would be hard to find opposition to fracking in the city of Denton. Not only is it in Texas, the oil and gas capital in the United States – but it lies in the very crucible of the shale gas industry itself. It was close by, in Newark, that George P. [...]

There’s a new theory that King Harold survived the Battle of Hastings and was buried, as a pensioner in his 70s, in Waltham Abbey, Essex. How wonderful if it’s true! And how wonderful if the team that found Richard III’s skeleton find Harold’s too. It seems unlikely, though. The wonderful thing about the Richard III [...]

David Cameron is not, on any normal definition, a Eurosceptic. He likes the EU well enough as it is. Sure, he’d ideally prefer to make some tweaks to it; but I have no doubt that, if there were a referendum tomorrow, he’d vote to stay in. He and I will be on opposite sides when [...]

A lot of Conservatives enjoyed Ukip’s successes in the Heywood and Middleton by-election last week. That’s understandable, because the Ukip near-miss in Lancashire scared the living daylights out of Labour – another 600 votes and Nigel Farage might have been dancing on Ed Miliband’s political grave. And it’s only natural for Conservatives to enjoy Labour [...]

It is good to see the Government has finally got over its hang up about having British boots on the ground in Iraq to help with the campaign against Isil. As I have been saying for weeks now, the Government’s obsession with sticking to its “no boots on the ground” mantra is utterly self-defeating, as  [...]

Here’s today’s cartoon from rough through pencil to ink and water colour. Note the alternative punchline in the rough. Miliband was moved right a fraction at the end, with the help of Photoshop.

Throughout each year, the breast cancer charities hold a myriad of events to collect money for research into the disease, for physical and psychological after-care and for raising awareness of the signs and symptoms, leading to earlier diagnoses and better outcomes for patients. While those with secondary/metastatic/advanced breast cancer tell a very different story – [...]
